Deviled eggs . . . my loves . . . my everything . . . . I always have hard boiled eggs on hand for salads and on-the-go snacks. These breakfast-friendly deviled eggs are slightly sweet and satisfying— like a cinnamon bun.

While teriyaki sauce traditionally does contain sugar, our keto-friendly version uses a sugar-free substitute that is still highly comparable and tastes almost the same on a protein like salmon, which absorbs flavors very well. Topped with a spicy aioli, this flaky fish dish is served with buttered asparagus for a classic-style dinner. If you enjoy an added crunch, toss some slivered almonds in with the asparagus right before serving.

Inspired by a traditional Swiss fondue, this chicken cordon bleu is singing from the Alps about its savory three-cheese blend with a dash of nutmeg, enveloping salty ham, which is, in turn, hugging a dash of tangy Dijon mustard.

If you're missing fries with that burger and shake, don't despair-try this recipe for tofu fries with a crispy-on-the-outside and moist-on-the-inside texture. Paired with Sugar-Free Ketchup or garlic aioli, its hard to tell these from the real deal. Make sure to remove as much moisture as possible before frying for the crispiest texture.
All of my favorite berries come together in this super fruity and fibrous smoothie. This tall glass of refreshment was a staple meal for me during busy workdays, often replacing lunch. Since berries tend to be high in fiber they are lower on the glycemic index scale, making them a great superfood for anyone on the keto diet. Enjoy this smoothie with fresh or frozen berries, depending on the time of year.

It’s no secret that pork chops are the Harry Potter of the protein world (the Potter that still lived under the stairs, not the Potter that defeated Voldemort—that would be Maine lobster). But what I love about pork chops is that they’re cheap, and with the right ketogenic “breading” you can take the flavor anywhere you want. Thick-cut pork chops work best because they stay juicy through the cooking process, but even with thin-cut chops you won’t care about juiciness because you’ll be enjoying so much more of the delicious coating. Serve this over zoodles for a great meal.
Sometimes it’s the simplest ingredients that make a dish. Here, a bitter mix of arugula is complemented by fresh lemon juice and olive oil. It’s full of great fats for ketogenic energy, with a modest amount of protein for a macro balance.
Nothing warms you up on a cold night like a warm bowl of chili. If beef chili just isn't your thing, this white chicken chili is sure to hit the spot. Green chiles are tempered with Cheddar cheese and sour cream but overall , this is a very mild chili. Add a jalapeño or serrano pepper to heighten the heat.

A minty twist on hot cocoa or coffee. This delicious drink can easily be spiked with a Kahlúa or Irish Whiskey.
If you are a yogurt lover, fear not: Yogurt is a treat that can be had on keto every once in a while, but only in its full-fat form. Creamy yogurt pairs well with the crunch of chia seeds and sliced almonds in this parfait recipe. Add fresh berries or a dash of cocoa powder for a real sweet treat.

In certain pasta dishes, cauliflower (amazing though it is) just isn't an option. Enter zucchini-the wonder vegetable that can be sliced and spiraled into a variety of pasta shapes to replicate your favorite meals. This lasagna recipe is extra cheesy and should cool and set longer than regular lasagna so it achieves the same texture.
Lasagna is delicious any time of the year, but in the summer fresh zucchini abounds. Find the best selections at your local farmer's market. Use it to make keto-friendly lasagna.
Meatloaf is a staple food that many people grew up with, but that was a different breed of meatloaf entirely. Although meatloaf is usually bulked up with oats or bread crumbs, this recipe relies on zucchini and added fat from bacon to achieve the same texture. Serve a slice of this meatloaf with some Cauliflower Mash for a hearty and heartwarming meal.

Sometimes you just want pizza. For a quick snack, nothing could be easier than these Zucchini Mini Pizzas. Sprinkled with mozarella cheese and topped with pepperoni, these tasty treats will have you thinking about making another batch before you're even done with the first.
These light, easy-to-make zucchini muffins are handy to have for a quick breakfast. They are excellent paired with Cinnamon Butter and a cup of Buttered Coffee (see our Buttered Coffee Recipe). Refrigerate in an airtight container to preserve the quality.
